Launching the One District One Sports scheme, the Uttar Pradesh government followed the motivational line said by Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson stating “If something stands between you and your success, move it. Never be denied.” Since Uttar Prades is India’s biggest state so to shortlist the best talent among the population was a big deal for the Ministry of Sports & Youth Affairs.

Under the ODOS scheme, one sport will be identified in each district of the Uttar Pradesh state and the best sports facilities will be provided to the sportsperson to prepare them. Through those preparations, they will be able to represent themselves at various championships and tournaments. The sportsperson will get a professional coach who will give them the proper training.

Those ten districts that saw the changes in sports after getting confirmation from the Central government include Mathura (Wrestling instead of Judo), Ballia, Ambedkar Nagar, Kanpur Dehat and Fatehpur (Athletics instead of Badminton), Bahraich (Football instead of Badminton), Shravati (Kabaddi instead of Badminton), Jhansi, Gonda and Lakhimpur Kheri (Hockey instead of Badminton).

As per the sources, the government will create one stadium in each district allowing only players & coaches to practise. Recently, the state cabinet sanctioned the construction of a cricket stadium in Chandausi tehsil of Sambhal district. It will be the responsibility of the District Administration to provide land for the stadium free of cost and make sure that the construction is done properly.
